Tilney adopts Deutsche Bank brand

Tilney Private Wealth Management has rebranded as Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management.

Deutsche Bank bought Tilney in December 2006 when it became the UK arm of Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management and the rebrand is Tilney’s latest stage of integration into its global parent.

The legal entity “Tilney Investment Management” remains unaltered and will continue to be used in client agreements.

Former Tilney CEO and Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management global head of global investment solutions David Campbell said the name change would help reassure clients and attract business.

He says: “Being part of Deutsche Bank has enhanced the quality of the Tilney offering, bringing a breadth and depth of expertise that is almost without parallel in the UK wealth management arena.

“Against the most demanding trading conditions seen for many years and continued uncertainty in markets, the Deutsche Bank name reflects the stability and resilience of our proposition.”

Many commentators suggested the region had shed its long-term reliance on the US, driven by massive growth in countries such as China and India. But after a strong 2007, these markets were significantly down last year, with China off by almost two-thirds over the period.
